French: F–10 Sequence / Levels 9 and 10 / Communicating / Reflecting
Content description
Reflect on the experience of learning and using French, considering how intercultural communication involves shared responsibility for meaning making
  1. considering how learning and using French and other languages offers different ways of interpreting the world and representing experience
  2. keeping a record (for example, journal, log, posting on forum) of critical incidents in the course of intercultural language learning across different levels, (for example, breakdowns or breakthroughs in communication, repair and recovery strategies, and responses and insights to interactions)
  3. comparing understandings of the relationship between language, culture and identity, using symbols, graphic representations, images and metaphors to represent how the relationship works
  4. discussing how intercultural communication involves being flexible, responsive and open to alternative ways of communicating, (for example, responding to different levels of emotionality or confrontation in debate, or different levels of respect in casual exchanges or service encounters)
  5. reflecting on how their own language use and communicative style might be perceived by French speakers, considering concepts such as ‘culture’, ‘attitudes’, ‘assumptions’ and ‘values’
